A School Group’s Unlikely Partner: Community Organizations

February 12, 2021


Have you ever seen a Rotary Club sign and wondered what they do? Are you a PTA, PTO or school group leader looking to your community for support? Rotary and other similar organizations can be a great partner to your school group but it can be hard to know where to start. Our guest has created some great community partnerships with these organizations and will give some tips on where to start.


About Our Guest: Travis Johnson, Podcast Host, Naval Officer, and Nonprofit Consultant

Travis is currently an active-duty officer in the United States Navy, married with two children, and on move #50. His humble beginnings include 36 moves before graduating high school at 17, 6 states, 5 foster homes, surviving 2 murder attempts, and getting in serious trouble with the law. Although this was very rough, there was always a person, group, or church willing to help him and his family. Now that he’s in a position to give back, he’s made it his mission to “Help the Helpers.” He also spent 15 years helping 400 families pay off $6 million in debt.

On the Nonprofit Architect podcast, Travis shares his perspective as the former Vice President of Books by Vets; a board member at the S.H.I.N.E. foundation; a benefactor $20,000+; a volunteer with 1,500+ hours; fundraiser with more than $500,000 raised; provided seed money for 6 startup nonprofits; event coordinator; and published author.
